My Best HOLI

Holi: the colourful festival. It brings out the hidden kid, childishness within us and sometimes the devil present inside also. Yes, this is one of the unique festivals that has got all the happiest ingredients in it and sparks at regular intervals of time for the joy and happiness.

Holi- the festival which amazes and ignites the smiles on every individual’s face and heart. Once I got a chance to celebrate this holi fest with the unknown place and with the unknown peoples. For couple of days I had been deputed to north Karnataka for work. And I am coming back from the office after completing the allocated work. As the day is Saturday, I left the office in the afternoon. I got some updates from the collegues that the holi festival has got some different sort of craze here. So they give me a caution to be alert if someone attacks you with the colours. It was actually an invitation for me at that moment as I had a camera in my back already. So this going to be a perfect stage to click some colours and enjoy my rest of the hours in this place.

And believe that was the best experience of Holi till date, the celebration is not between the families, houses, roads or the areas. It’s completely open and the whole city was invited to jump in the pool of colours. Almost 500 to 700 people were celebrating this holi with colours. And there is no castism, regionalism and there is no upper class or a lower class. All are invited and welcomed with to the huge street where they indulge whole heartedly with the colours.

As they arranged in quite a good way with some the big business persons, big families has spend their buck on this celebration where I could find the 10-12 water tankers also. And the washed water will lead to the nearest gardens and to the farming land. It really amazes me for the idea that they invested to make this unique festival even more economically and environment friendly.

And I completely immersed, indulged and involved with the colours. And I just revisited to my childhood type of celebration and enjoyed like the kids who are celebrating their first holi. This is how the festival brings out the unity in diversity and makes more sense. And make everyone to fall in LOVE with colours, Colours for life. 🙂

My #KhulKeKheloHoli

HOLI: The festival of colours, the name itself is vibrant, joy, celebration and refreshment! This festival is exuberant and has a lot of meaning and a character in t. it has only 4 letters and it connects each and everyone with heart and through colours.
H for Happiness
O for Ocean of celebration
L for Lovely moments
I for it Integrates everyone
I believe HOLI is one of those festivals which is being celebrated by all the religions without any second thoughts in their mind.

Actually I could relishes and recollect few those moments of holi which adores the celebration of this fest. One which is in my school days, next at in the college, next in the office and the latest one is on the street with the unknown faces. All these are truly rejuvenating my livid moments with the colors!

Ok, come with me I will take you to those days to show how was my HOLI celebrations at that moment of time. It’s time here to revisit and relish those memories of the past. Well, actually I was at seventh standard and we did not have any specific holiday for the celebration of HOLI festival, so we were very much not aware of when is this festival going to celebrate. And this festival usually celebrated at the home in that period of time. And in our home, we are not fond of this holi festival but I was loved to celebrate with friends.

And it was afternoon on this Holi festival day, me and my friends done with the lunch and we headed back to class, we sit in our respective seats. And suddenly a girl from the backside started pouring colors as she bought it from her home and the splashing colors has fell on my face and the shirt. Then immediately I started running out of the classroom to trying to escape from the colors and friends.
Hmmm, I should have not done that but it happened, as I was running outside the class with colors on my face and the school uniform I was caught up by our PE teacher, Without any second thought that sir slapped on to my cheeks. Uffff that was a real jammer for my cheeks and teeth’s. As my teacher thought I was the one bought colors to the classroom and started doing this bizarre activities in the class hours. Without waiting for any moments I started apologizing for the mistake, this is how it happened in my first HOLI celebrations outside the home though I was not the victim to punish.

Though it’s a sad start in the school but it ended with a colourful note as and when I reached my home where I splashed with lot of colours and eggs. Yes, I must be remembered this for what it happened to me and finally it ended up with colourful cheers  🙂

Buying a new home is probably one the most important decisions you will make. You would want to make the perfect choice so that you and your family can make the best of your new life in your new home. Comfort, convenience, and security go hand-in-hand with the happiness you deserve. If you’re a bit lost among the choices you’re presented with, here’s some help. Among the factors to keep in mind when you make your choice, are the various amenities that support a convenient, happy, healthy and pleasant residential experience. Here are some factors you shouldn’t miss out on when picking your dream home:

  • Safety and Security: The most precious elements of your life deserve to be worry free. Along with the people you love, the possessions and wealth need protection too. So that you can focus on the best things in your life, you need to ensure that all that you care for is safe and secure.
  • Transport: Whether you’re making your way to work, dropping your children off to school or heading out to relax over the weekend, convenient transport facilities will help you get out and get there as soon as soon as possible.
  • Schools and Colleges: The best way to ensure a bright future for your children, is the convenient proximity to the best education institutions. The time they’ll save in a short journey to a long day at school will give them the freedom to play and absorb their lessons to the fullest.
  • Healthcare: The best living is accompanied with the best health. Your own and your family’s health should be at its best at all times and should something go wrong unexpectedly, professional healthcare should be as close as possible.
  • Shopping: Frequent visits to supermarket or convenience store will be a regular task for every home. The closer these places are to your place the less troublesome it will be to stock your home with all it needs.
  • Recreation: Whether it’s after a long day or a long week of work, school or homemaking you and your family can do with an extensive stretch of doing what makes you happy. You needn’t have to travel far for access to the best recreational facilities, it’s more enjoyable when the journey to them is brief.
  • Beauty: An everyday spectacle of the sunrise or sun set, the plumes of whimsical clouds, the lush greenery of rolling hills will not only calm your mind, it will make your home the place you will want to come back to no matter what.

The next big question is, “Where, Oh where will I find this ideal access to blissful living?” It’s  really not that hard to find.

Sheth Builder’s upcoming housing project Avalon ticks all boxes when it comes to convenient transport, proximity to education institutions and hospitals, nearby shopping centres, quality recreation facilities and an enviable view of nature’s abundance.

#MemoriesForLife Continues…

We are made of memories. The memories that we actually experience is the one which takes us to the next level of life. There are many such memories that has made me, ME. 🙂

I was always waiting for the summer holidays in my early days of life, ie in my childhood. And that was early period of 20th century; only 90’s kids would understand the feeling of the summer holidays and the impacts of summer holidays. The moment when the summer vacation approaches I immediately hop into my village. I really cherished those days for many reasons. Behind that there are many impacts that leave their marks. According to my parents I could have reduced my weight in the village, as I was humpty dumpty guy at that age. And according to me I am going to get many bundles of friends to play with them in the open fields like the world never ends, no matter whether it’s in the soothing sunrise, under squeezing hot afternoon or in the breezing evening. And the impact that is revolving here is very clear, so I can play all the days and intern I could’ve reduced my fat as well. This is also one of the different sort memories between me and my parents on the same reason.

In those 90’s where there was only one TV for the road or in an area. Whoever has TV in their home are the stars of the area, boss of the town. In those typical conditions, one fine day I saw a huge crowd cheering in front of the small shop, as I was little kid I was taunted to that and went near to that place, there I saw my uncle also one among that little huge crowd. And I was asked him what’s going on??? He lifts me up and there’s a cricket match was happening between India vs. Pakistan. And all the crowds were excited and cheering for team India, and it was Asia cup I guess, where I was just 7 or 8 years old.

And there where my craze on cricket has took birth and it’s been growing like anything, there I started cherishing the straight drives of Sachin, Square cut’s my Rahul Dravid, typical front foot cover drive of Brian Lara many more like those. Yes. Those incidents which have made a lot of things in me and the impact is still ON and it’s going strong. That impact has even made me to meet the rock star of that generation, down to earth personality and the Mr. Wall of cricket Rahul Dravid. The impact of cricket is surely a gem of the memory on me and my life.

Everyone was busy with filling the autography books, slam books , some are exchanging the the gifts with them and some of the boys took off the shirts to get the signatures and the one word about them on their shirts and some of them are crying and some of them very emotional. Hmmm it all happened, it is happening and it will happen in the future in the future also!

Yes, that’s the scenario of my engineering last day. It all happened because of the memories that have given to us. The memories are like petals of tree, and we are bonded with it and we are living I it. The engineering days give lot of memories to all of us and we do see it in many movies too. And I’m nonetheless spared out of it. And these memories are making merry with the lot of daily routine activities too! Each memory is worthy, a treasure and that’s why we call it and mean it.

Well, though I was bit emotional, I was the silent observer on that D-day, well, well, the conversations exchanging between the friends are truly recollecting the rejoice moments of our journey and it adoring our book of memory.

The first day at the college where it has set the milestone for everyone. All new faces where we never knew each other but we introduced, we exchanged, we involved, we bonded. We rejoiced and we created long lasting memories. How good is that??? I never imagined that those things would happen in my life and it will fill a page in my best memory of life.

Recollecting those memories are really making me weaker and emotional and yes, that has made me stronger to live the life to the fullest with the joy. The smarter moves we did in the four years of successful engineering for the championship that we WON in the first year and how we managed to retain in the consecutive three years is massive and respected.

All those moments stand tall in my memory lane. The involvement that we put in each moments which gets an applaud for everything it has done to made me, ME!! And this is one of the memories that stays deeper in the heart and filled the gap between immaturity and life. And it has thought everything in a fun filled way. That is why it has become the part of my life in the form of MEMORY!
